    EXFO MAX-FIP Fiber Certifier
    Rugged, tablet-inspired design featuring the latest innovations in automated connector and fiber certification. Ensures that workflow and best practices are followed by simplifying and speeding up the critical inspection phase.



    The MAX-FIP features the largest screen in the industry, providing the highest magnification level for precise viewing of even the smallest defects on fiber endfaces. The unit’s tablet-inspired design featuring an icon-based graphical user interface (GUI) makes it easy to navigate and toggle between different applications (inspection, connector analysis, power measurement and VFL troubleshooting). Additionally, its bright 7-inch touchscreen ensures fast and easy operation of the instrument even in full daylight, in turn eliminating eye fatigue associated with prolonged connector inspection (typically experienced during full-day fiber-patch-panel certification routines).



    The MAX-FIP standard 6 GB internal memory offers extensive storage of up to 4000 fiber certification results, and is expandable using USB memory sticks, optional WiFi and Bluetooth capability for cloud-based storage, and wireless FIP-425/FIP-435B AUTONOMY

    Take full advantage of the MAX-FIP’s amazing eight-hour battery operation that never lets you down, and enables you to complete full-day jobs without having to recharge the unit. Also, save money by not having to pay expensive battery replacement costs associated with other handheld inspection kits on the market operating on standard alkaline mm x 155 mm x 50 mm (7 7/8 in x 6 1/8 in x 2 in)Weight (with battery)1 kg (2.2 lb)TemperatureOperating: –10 °C to 50 °C (14 °F to 122 °F)

    EXFO FIP-420B Fiber Inspection Probe

    Connector inspection using automated analysis software to assess connector quality is an essential step during fiber commissioning and installation, and an integral part of best practices. Maintaining connector certification records is important for future reference. When combined with fiber certification, connector inspection provides end-to-end certification.

    However, users may not be aware of the fact that standards do not specify the focus level needed to achieve proper connector assessment. A slightly out-of-focus image may hide defects and trigger a “pass” result when analyzed in accordance with specific inspection standards. Unfortunately, if these hidden defects exceed acceptance criteria, the result will be a false positive.

    › Such false-positive results are likely to mislead users and lead to costly consequences. Future upgrades to higher data rates such as 40G/100G may fail, as tolerances for insertion loss (IL) and optical return loss (ORL) become much tighter with higher data rates. For example, a connector hiding small defects in the core area may be able to handle 2.5G or 10G, but could fail at 100G. If a specific link is chosen for an upgrade to a higher data rate, and tied to a service-level agreement (SLA), there could be grave financial consequences.

    › False positives may also become the root cause of long and tedious troubleshooting tasks, because engineers will seek out issues at the fiber level (transmission cards, splice points) before rechecking connectors that are displaying pass results.

    › Bad connectors can also affect test results. A good example of this is higher ORL readings from the OTDR due to dirty connectors, which typically exhibit more reflection. Another commonly encountered example involves erratic readings during 40G or 100G OTN BERT testing. Problems such as forward error correction (FEC) may also arise and lead to unnecessary troubleshooting of TX and RX equipment, when in actual fact the problem is at the connector level. When these issues surface, the only solution is to obtain reliable results by returning on-site and retesting the link.

    To avoid such issues, users are now requesting methods that optimize image quality to ensure the integrity of inspection results. This is exactly where the new FIP-430B inspection probe comes into play. Thanks to it’s fully automated features, the FIP-430B ensures optimized image quality. This inspection probe automatically adjusts and optimizes focus and image centering, and then automatically captures and analyzes in accordance with preprogrammed IEC, IPC or custom standards delivering accurate results— and all in just ONE step.

    The autofocus feature in the new FIP-430B not only greatly facilitates inspection, but also enables optimized focus adjustment to ensure detection of all defects capable of affecting connector performances.

    The system self-adjusts the image centering to ensure that all inspection zones are visible, and then automatically adjusts the focus to achieve the best optical resolution. Next, the IEC, IPC, or custom standard is applied to deliver accurate certification results in a snap.

    Fussing with image focusing, centering and inaccurate analysis results is now a thing from the past. Get the best. Get the FIP-430B.

    The rubber casing and controls are designed for intense field operation. The controls are strategicially positioned to make the inspection process easier. Plus, the very bright LED status can be easily viewed from different angles. The FIP-400B is designed for seamless handling by both right- and left-handed users.

    When you outsource your fiber testing, you want to be certain that the technician will apply the best practices and properly certify every connector. Neglecting to do so, at this critical step, will lead to serious, time-consuming problems. The new FIP-400B Series is the result of years of fiber-inspection experience in the field. Its patent-pending, re-engineered design was developed from actual, end-user response for the purpose of optimizing and speeding up the inspection process.

    This function cuts inspection time in half, because it automatically detects the fiber endface and instantly centers the image. The user simply has to focus and capture. This is especially handy when inspecting patch panels and hard-to-reach connectors. It also ensures that users will not miss defects in the critical zones of the connectors.

    By optimizing the image size, users get a detailed view of all defects. This series features the only probes in the industry offering three magnification levels.

    The FIP-430B’s unique 912 µm x 912 µm FOV greatly facilitates visual MPO connector. Plus, ConnectorMax2 includes a picture-in-picture, low-magnification window that displays multiple fibers (4 or 8 at a time), ensuring that you never miss a fiber while scanning.

    Located directly on the probe, this LED indicates the status of the connector under test following analysis, providing immediate diagnosis of connector cleanliness. Because there is no need to consult the platform or display screen, users can simply focus on getting ready for their next inspection.

    The FIP-400B can be quickly transformed into a benchtop inspection solution by mounting the probe on a desktop support stand (GP-2182, sold as accessory). This leaves your hands free for repetitive manipulations and inspection of fiber jumpers and connectors. This makes the FIP-400B probes quite a handy solution for the production floor having to inspect both patch chords and bulkheads.
